The Boboli Gardens in Florence

This heyday of the arts and architecture in Florence it is due to Family Medici and this passion for beauty is also found in the beautiful Boboli Gardens. This Garden, Italianate, is one of the largest parks of Florence, is located between the Pitti Palace, Forte Belvedere and Porta Romana and can be called an open-air museum for the sculptures, fountains, various plants and the grottoes. Walking among these beauties you can imagine Cosimo I de 'Medici, the family, the court that coming out of Pitti Palace reaching here was the most diverse leisure activities between works of art that we find today. Walking through the paths we will find the Cave of Buontalenti with three connecting rooms with representations as the fountain with the Venus emerging from the bathroom. Later we will find the Roman Amphitheatre shaped of a horseshoe from the Baths of Caracalla, and the Egyptian obelisk with a base with bronze tortoises. Among terraces lies the Basin of Neptune, a large tub with the bronze statue of Neptune that emerges from a rocky outcrop, cont'd we will find the Statue of Abundance of Notch, on the east side of the amphitheater, at the height of the statue of Abundance, is the Kaffeehause Rococo-style pavilion with the exotic windowed cupola, The building stands on a meadow sloping the center of which stands the fountain of Ganymede and from which you can admire the view. Between the various fountains there is the Fountain of the Ocean in Piazzale dell'Isolotto, the fountain of Jupiter, the fountain of the artichoke and the fountain of the pitchfork. Continuing the path we will find many varieties of trees who may seem like a path between nature, but also other important statues as the statue of Andromeda and of Aesculapius, Flora and Jupiter young. We will also find the lawn of the Columns and the Limonaia It is also to visit the Forte Belvedere. Continuing next to Palazzo Pitti we find the edifice of Meridiana, a neoclassical work who takes its name from sundials placed in front; in front stretches Prato della Meridiana with the various statues. The Boboli Gardens is one of those corners of Florence that is worth to discover or rediscover for his particular charm that the visitor will know grasp and remember over time.
